Hi Bold Bakers!

Do you know those times when you want a freshly-baked warm cookie but you don’t want to make a whole batch? Or you just have a small amount of flour and 1 egg left in your fridge? Well, I have come up with a solution: A recipe that will yield you just 1 perfect Big and Bold cookie, and possibly the nicest cookie you have ever had. You will have a freshly-baked cookie in less time than it will take to preheat the oven.

I have 3 amazing single-serving cookies – a classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, Soft Sugar Cookie, and  a Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cookie Recipe for 1 – Bigger Bolder Baking

These cookies are the perfect amount for a single serving. I am a big fan of single-serving recipes, just like my selection of mug cakes. So if you are in a rush, or want just one cookie after school or work, then this is a great recipe for you.

I was inspired to make these from some of my favorite blogs Sally’s Baking Addiction and Cooking Classy

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe for 1 – Bigger Bolder Baking

This cookie is so lovely because it has that gooey, almost underdone mildde with crispy edges, which equals cookie perfection!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp (1oz/30g) butter
  • 3 Tbsp light-brown sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp whisked egg*
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda (this is a ½ of a ¼ tsp)
  • 4 tbsp chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350oF (180oC).
  • Place butter in a microwave safe mixing bowl and melt
  • To the melted butter, add brown sugar, salt, 1 tbsp egg, the vanilla, flour and baking soda. Stir with a spoon until well combined, about 20 - 30 seconds.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Shape dough into a 3-inch disk on parchment paper lined baking sheet
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, until cookie is golden. You don’t want to over bake your cookie so it stays soft and doughie in the middle.
  • Serve warm or allow to cool on a wire rack then store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

*To get 1 Tbsp egg, crack egg into a small bowl, whisk until yolk and white are well blended, then measure out 1 Tbsp.
*If you don’t have brown sugar you can use white

Sugar Cookie Recipe for 1 – Bigger Bolder Baking

This recipe is a soft sugar cookie, not a crispy cookie. Also I get to add sprinkles, which makes everything better. I love this cookie especially for around the holiday season.

I have caster sugar instead of granulated sugar. Would it make a difference if I used it?

I made a double batch of the double chocolate chip (used Hershey’s special dark) so my son and I can have one each. My son (9) said they are the best cookie I ever made! He called them brownie cookies. I love the crisp edges and fudgy center! They turned out perfect in my toaster oven. I’ve made the chocolate chip and double chocolate a few times. These are delicious every time I make them! Quick, rich, and delicious.

hi gemma! i tried the chocolate one and it was super good! however, i tried multiplying the recipe to make a bigger batch so that its not just single serve but the cookies ended up with texture of cake (spongey and light). any thoughts? would you have this exact recipe that can create about 5-7 of these cookies?

I am not that patient. I would have just baked it off in the microwave at 50% power for up to 77 seconds, while eyeballing it from the outside stopping it once the middle started to firm up. Don’t judge me. I have also made flan in the microwave, lol! My Cuban friend thinks that is a sacrilege.
